Fred Fawn has been a collector and exhibitor of Canadian philately for many years. After his Map stamp collection became the first Canada/BNA single stamp exhibit to receive a Gold award at the Federation Internationale de Philatelie (FIP) World level he went on to study the Large Queen issue. The Dominion of Canada: The Large Queens 1868-1896, the 47th volume in the BNAPS Exhibit series, is the result.
The Large Queen stamps were the first adhesives to be issued by Canada after Confederation in 1867. ‘The Dominion of Canada: The Large Queens 1868-1896 shows the development of the stamps through the essay and proof stages. It then looks at all the stamps in the set, including varieties where they occurred as well as a special study of the colour variations of the 15¢ value, and into the postal history of each value. In recent years Fred has branched out into the field of single frame exhibiting. In a separate section this book includes his two exhibits in that category, one on the 15¢ value and the second on the postal history of the Large Queens.
